Abstract:
Discussions of individual basic rights and their constitutional protection are fundamental to research into basic rights theory. This paper aims at explicating the functions of the basic right to senior education and its constitutional rationale through interpretative epistemology of the Constitution from a lifelong-learning-right perspective. The research findings are as follows: (1) In global aging societies, the basic right to senior education is a relatively new right to education, and its constitutional rationale can be derived from articles 11 and 22 of the Constitution. (2) The functions of the basic right to senior education are the defensive function, objective values function, institutional protection function, and organizational and procedural function. (3) Except for the first function, the others are new basic-right functions, which impose the state obligations to help the older adults benefit from the right to senior education. On the basis of these findings, some suggestions for policy decision-makers and future research are provided.

Keywords:aging in place, aged society, basic right to education, right to lifelong learning, senior education
